The first time I came here, it was 2005. 

I go on a lot of pilgrimages. I believe in God. My husband says, “Oh you believe in everything. I don’t believe as much as you do.”

I would say, “Lord, I know who You are, and You know who I am. I don’t have to see You, I don’t have to touch You, because You are with me always. Please, my husband is such a good person, such a good man. Do something so that he comes to really believe who You are.”

We received a grace at the Blue Cross. My husband has Parkinson’s. He was not able to walk. I went to Apparition Hill, and I left him on the bottom of the hill. I told him to stay there. 

He said the most beautiful lady came up to him and said, “What are you doing here?” He said, in that moment, he didn’t see anybody else around him, but he saw that beautiful lady with a long beige dress, and she had sandals. 

He said, “I’m waiting for my wife. She went to Apparition Hill.”

She said, “Why didn’t you go?”

He said, “I couldn’t.”

She said, “Okay. Why don’t you come with me?”

He said, “Oh no. I cannot go.”

She said, “I will bring you to the Blue Cross.”

He said no three times, and three times this lady insisted for him to go. Three times she reached out her hand for him to go with her. 

He said, “If my wife comes down the hill and she sees me holding this lady’s hands, she’s not going to be very happy. I couldn’t go with her and now I’m going with this lady?” So he said no three times. 

Then he went finally, and he said, “I didn’t feel it was complicated at all. It was not hard at all,” but as soon as he got to the Blue Cross, he went to say thank you, but he never saw her again. 

I love Medjugorje, and I believe this is holy ground. I wish everybody would see that because we have so much evil in the world, and it’s so beautiful. 

For you to know the power and the graces of God, go to Medjugorje. Let Our Lady intercede for you because Medjugorje is a very holy place. I love it, and I would convince anybody to come to taste the goodness of the Lord.

I’m 73 years old. It’s hard sometimes to get around, but I come over here, and I cannot stop in the room. I have to be walking around and going to the Blue Cross. You feel the peace. You know there’s something different than yourself. You don’t see it, but you can feel it.
